Swedish Aid to Africa Misused

Published tisdag 2 oktober 2007 kl 14.39

Swedish auditors have presented a blistering report on what they call the lack of compent financial controls of the Swedish International Development Agency’s programs in Africa.

The authorities have been checking on 15 foreign aid projects in such countries as Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia and South Africa – concluding that none of them meet basic requirements and reveal ”astounding” lack of follow-up.

Lists of participants in projects have been falsified, too high salaries paid out for no work done, and local auditors relied upon without any double checking.

This adds to the already sharp debate over the Swedish center-right coalition government’s decision to reduce the number of countries receiving foreign assistance.
